I'm a canucks fan, and I take byfuglien over edler any day of the week.

The only downside is his motivation, and weight issues. So far its not stopping him to produce.

Byfuglien produces more than Edler.

While byfuglien is not a defensive wiz, what makes edler a good defensive dman?

Edler gets sheltered minutes, 60 percent offensive zone starts, and somehow he is only EVEN in +/- on a top team in the regular season. Yet byfuglien is a pylon for being - 8 on a much inferior team?
Edler is inconsistent as hell on defense.

And not to mention byfuglien offers an intriguing option to use as a forward and be use as a massing net screen and power forward.
